ASA offers special thanks to everyone who experienced Staffing World®, the ASA annual convention and expo last month. Staffing industry professionals convened in a state-of-the-art virtual reality environment and attended powerful keynote presentations and breakout sessions.

They also made valuable connections in the virtual coffee house, sponsored by PandoLogic, and in the expo hall, which showcased 54 elite exhibitors and sponsoring companies.
